Ensemble Connector

Ensemble Connector

Last Updated: August 31, 2021

The challenge for the CSP is to provide a ubiquitous virtual switching infrastructure that can host other virtual network functions (VNFs). CSPs virtualizing their network need an enabling platform that provides high throughput data path performance. They need a solution that scales from small-footprint, edge applications to high-density, data center use cases. They need a solution that solves their OpenStack operational concerns and makes OpenStack fully deployable outside of the data center. And they need a solution that operates on a wide range of commercial off-the-shelf platforms, protecting their software investment and unlocking the networking functions from proprietary hardware. They need Ensemble Connector. Ensemble Connector is a family of software packages that enables CSPs to provide the data path and virtual hosting functionality at customer premises, in the gateway between network clouds, and in the data center.
